Made in Vermont

Vermont is home to a thriving spirits industry. Our in-state distillers are producing a wide variety of products from vodka and maple liqueurs to gin and rye whiskey. Many of them are winning national acclaim and international awards for their fine quality and appealing flavor.

If you would like to sample some of these locally-made spirits, check our calendar of tasting events for locations, times, and products at: http://802Spirits.com/event-types/retail-agency-tastings

A number of the distilleries have their own tasting rooms where the products they make can be sampled and purchased. You may also find local distillers at farmers’ markets, special events, or festivals around the state.
